NEMO signs and supports the European Heritage Alliance Manifesto

On 9 May 2020, the European Heritage Alliance released the Manifesto “Cultural Heritage: a powerful catalyst for the future of Europe” during the Europe Day Webinar, hosted by the Europeana Foundation and Europa Nostra on behalf of the Alliance. NEMO is a member of the European Heritage Alliance and fully supports the manifesto, which puts forward 7 interconnected ways in which cultural heritage can be a positive catalyst for change in Europe

The European Heritage Alliance Manifesto aims to convey a strong message of solidarity, hope and unity to Europe’s leaders and citizens at a time when Europe and the entire planet are struggling to overcome an unprecedented crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus. Through the Manifesto, representatives of major European and international heritage networks which form part of the European Heritage Alliance express the readiness of the wider heritage world to contribute to Europe’s immediate social and economic recovery, as well as to the longer-term advancement of the European project.
